上帝丰富的怜悯 [The Rich Mercy of God]

书卷:以弗所书(新约)
作者:保罗

以弗所书2章4节:“然而上帝既有丰富的怜悯,因祂爱我们的大爱,”

今日默想:经文使用“然而上帝”,不是“然而我”。这提醒我们不是如何立志不犯罪、信主,而是“然而上帝”怜悯了我。我们罪恶的众多与顽恶,若非上帝有丰富的怜悯,我们必然无法得救。怜悯是在爱以先,且临及那不可爱的人。这使不可爱的人从可怜的光景,救拔到可爱的地位。上帝总是先以怜悯对待我们。当我们藐视祂的怜悯时,祂才以祂的公义对待我们。惟有认识上帝爱的人,才懂得救恩的宝贵。凡对上帝的大爱无动于衷的,决不可能被祂重用。

Book: Ephesians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Ephesians 2:4 :“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,”

Today’s Meditation: The verse uses “but God” and not “but us”. This reminds us to stop being determined to avoid sinning and start relying on God. It is God who mercies us. Our sins would have made us unsaved if it were not God’s rich mercy. Mercy comes before love and reaches for the unlovable people. This makes the unlovable people to rise from pity prospect to lovable place. God always treat us with His mercy. He only treats us with His righteousness when we ignore His mercy. Only those who know the love of God really know the precious salvation. Those who are not touched by God’s love cannot be used by Him.
